1 x 5 gallon bucket
1 x 4 gallon pot
1 x 3 gallon pot
1 x 18" rubber tubing (6" OD)
1 x 3" rubber tubing clear (6" OD)
1 x 12v 5000RPM peristaltic pump
1 x Pump holder
1 x Drip ring
3 Gallons clay pebbles

Do not use peristaltic pumps unless your waterings are very infrequent. They are not designed for prolonged use. Use this instead:
